Great advice!

When you are playing a game of golf, most of the time you are dragging your own bag, measuring your own distances, choosing your own club, cleaning your own clubs and ball and generally making all your own decisions. If you had a caddie, not only would they do all these menial tasks but they would be there to give you advice and moral support. Of course you can't have a caddie every time you play but if you ever get a chance when you are away on holiday, spoil yourself and pay for the experience. The way you will approach your next trip to the course will be a whole new ball game. See some info here.


If you want to improve your game, give us a call on 95173471 and make an appointment for a lesson with our PGA David.





The TaylorMade M4 Driver is a straightforward driver that gives you more stability throughout the club head for better distance and forgiveness. Even though it lacks more advanced adjustable features, the driver is tailored to the mid handicapper who needs to concentrate more on a fundamental approach to their tee game than bells and whistles. This week Golf Traders are doing some great deals on the TaylorMade 2021 M4 range. If you are looking to upgrade your driver, fairway, hybrid or irons then check out what we have in store here.
